Tash's custom Honda Hornet 600

Average User Rating:
4/5,
  • fully customised 1998 Honda Hornet 600. the work was done over the 12 month period that i held my r-date licence. We did it this way because that way a) it would make sure i didn't ride it until i was licenced to and b) since i was doing a heap of mods, best to do it while i can't ride it! A lot of people here on Netrider were involved in watching it change. Thanks to my dad and my boyfriend for being so patient with me.

    I still have this bike, i can't imagine owning anything else until it dies :)

    Bike cost $4500. Mods cost $4000.
